Another Beginning

Quinton's First Day
Originally uploaded by dsmithsteeves

Quinton had his first day of school today, and there is actually not much to report. And that's not because it wasn't a big deal. Quinton woke up happy and excited, got dressed, ate a full and healthy breakfast and hopped in the car. We dropped a much less nervous Elliot off at his room and then Dan, Quinton & I proceeded to Miss Melissa's class for the big drop-off. Quinton whipped off his outdoor shoes, climbed into his slippers, told the assistant Miss Annette that he was "wearing his rock-n-roll pants," gave us a hug and never looked back. I arrived at noon to find him content, excited to share details of his day ("Only one of my friends was sad today, Mommy. And just for a little bit.") , and full of joy. On the way home he announced, "This was a very big day for me, Mommy."

Of course it was, Quinton.
